The Deputy Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwaku Boahen has criticized President Akufo-Addo for failing on his promise to fight corruption charges leveled against members of his government.
Speaking on Rainbow FM, the Communications officer of the opposition party indicated that the president had failed to deliver on his promise to fight corruption when he assumed office. He added that the president had not shown any political will to fight corruption.
He insinuated that with the way things were going, Ghanaians would be shocked at what the NPP government would turn governance into in the next two years if corruption is not dealt with.
Kwaku Boahen also added that the section of Ghanaians who voted for change have started regretting their actions for voting out the NDC administration. He added that the NPP had come into power to enrich themselves. He also said that the president had failed in his promise to protect the public purse and block any acts of corruption in his tenure.
The Communications Officer made reference to the allegations brought against some presidential staffers as one example and also made reference to the allegations at BOST and how the MD of the institution was still at post. The member of the NDC indicated that at most, a number of current government appointees should either be sacked or be behind bars for cases of alleged corruption leveled against them.
He added that the president should stand by his words to fight any act of corruption levelled against any of his appointees at the just-ended Delegates Conference of his party which was held in Cape Coast.
